Under the influence of new technology, the manufacturing industry is leading in the technological tranformation. According to ManpowerGroup's "The Future Factory" whitepaper, almost half of all roles (49%) in manufacturing will need to change within the next three-to-five years. Especially the roles requiring advanced digital skills such as automation, instrumentation and robotics are on the rise.
The disruption of new technologies transforming the manufacturing industry and impacting the need for more advanced digital manufacturing jobs also requires talent with more advanced skills. "The Future Factory" analysis has also identified 165 new and evolving roles across seven “domains” of technical expertise, including Digital Manufacturing; Digital Thread; Digital Enterprise; Digital Product; Digital Design; Supply Network; Omni. It was made clear that due to the technological disruption, employers need to develop a connected workforce strategy. As it gets challenging to find trained workers with necessary skills, organizations must build, bridge and borrow the skill sets they need, that will be critical for their success in the short, medium and long term.
